What we do

We provide rehabilitation and support services in times of need.

At Mates4Mates, we are here to support veterans, current-serving members, and the families that stand by their side.

We provide services.
From physical rehabilitation and psychology services, to skills and wellbeing programs, and social connection activities – our innovative and evidence-led services improve lives.

We rebuild lives. 
We foster connections and build community through our Family Recovery Centres in North Queensland, South East Queensland, Tasmania, and outreach areas. 

We collaborate. 
We’re here to support veterans and meet their ever-changing needs. We work together with like-minded organisations to provide the right support.  Together, we can reach more people.
